Alaska Airlines flight attendants are getting new sexual misconduct training after a former Facebook executive

The Seattle-based airline said Monday that it's developing in-person training.

It'll draw from the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network and King County Sexual Assault Resource Center for "a research-based approach focused on the impact of individual choices to shift social norms."

There will also be onboard resources to support passengers.

The airline pointed to that and the broader Me Too movement, saying conversations about respectful conduct are a good thing.
